NetworkRobotics1 posted for the first time about his father's experience with brady therapy in another thread. Welcome to HW\, thanks for sharing your info with us and hope you will stay with us and share your father's Journey to recovery with us. A signature with the details would be helpful for us to see where he has been so far.

I read NetworkRobotics1 report of the fistula that his father suffered in the other thread .. That is what happened to Pete...The fistula problem after radiation or brachy..That is a truly horrible side effect that not many talk about and should be addressed to the doctor before any radiation treatment. It does not occur right away...it is usually about 4 or 5 years later ...... Diane

Diane, it's a real shame that what happened to Pete has happened to someone else in the case of networkrobotitic's father. I hated reading that
